Premier League: Chelsea sign winger from Ukraine on colossal 812-year, US$108 million contract.

Mykhailo Mudryk, 22, a striker from Shakhtar Donetsk with only 65 professional matches under his belt, joined the Premier League team on Sunday. Chelsea dubbed him “one of the most dangerous attacking players in Europe in one-v-one situations.”

Mykhailo Mudryk, a player from Ukraine, joined Chelsea on Sunday from Shakhtar Donetsk in a transaction worth €100 million (US$108 million), and he signed an incredible 812-year contract. He is the latest high-profile acquisition for the club under its new American ownership.

Prior to Chelsea’s match against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, the 22-year-old winger, who was strongly connected with Arsenal, was photographed holding up the Ukrainian flag and posing for pictures inside Chelsea’s stadium.

One of the most dangerous attacking players in Europe in one-v-one scenarios, according to Chelsea, who revealed his signing about 20 minutes into the game.

At this point in my career, this is a really attractive assignment for me because it’s a big club in a great league, according to Mudryk. “I’m eager to work with and learn from Graham Potter and his staff, and I’m looking forward to getting to know my new teammates.”

Watch carefully.

Although it was thought that Chelsea and Arsenal had made comparable offers, the Blues have set up a plan that would pay Shakhtar more cash up front and more advantageous add-ons than those being negotiated with Arsenal.

Chelsea withheld the sum of money, but Shakhtar announced in a statement that it will receive €70 million plus a further €30 million “as a bonus payment.”

Mykhailo will undoubtedly get the respect, pity, and love of all football fans around the world because to his pace, technique, and spectacular and beautiful performance, according to Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov.

Mudryk, who has only participated in 65 club games in the course of his career, has appeared to express interest in joining Arsenal in a number of Instagram posts.

But Chelsea moved swiftly to add him to the deal that brought in Andrey Santos, David Fofana, and Benoit Badiashile for an estimated US$70 million in the January transfer window. On loan from Atletico Madrid, Joao Felix has also joined.

The owners, who oversaw the investment of close to US$300 million on new players – a record amount by an English team – during the summer transfer window, have made another daring choice in bringing in Mudryk.

Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, co-controlling owners of Chelsea, described him as “a highly exciting talent” who will be a great addition to their team both now and in the future. “He will give our attack more depth, and we know he’ll be welcomed in London with open arms,” they said.

In addition to Felix, Raheem Sterling, Christian Pulisic, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea already has a great depth on the left side of the attack, where Mudryk primarily plays.

Chelsea only won one of their previous nine league games before the arrival of Palace, placing them in tenth place in the Premier League.

The London club would suffer tens of millions of euros in losses if the team didn’t advance to the upcoming Champions League. Chelsea won the Champions League and received €120 million during the 2020–21 season, the most recent for which Uefa provided prize money numbers. Liverpool suffered a quarterfinal defeat and received €88 million.

Arsenal made it to the semifinals of the second-tier Europa League that same season, although they only received €30 million in funding from Uefa. Since then, prize money has increased thanks to sponsorship and media partnerships for the 2021–24 seasons.
